Yowza. Six years. It’s a short time. In other respects, it’s an eternity. There has been a lot of change in the world since 2015. It can be difficult to even remember 2015 when considering the amazing churn over the past two years. Many aspects of Rock Band culture are still relevant today. We’re still releasing weekly DLC, we’re starting up our 24th (!!) Season of Rivals of Rock BandsOn November 4, the Rock Band community was still vibrant with music enthusiasts from around the globe.
Presents for Birthday
When we think about what it means to have a six-year old video game franchise, tradition is our guide. As we have always done for Rock Band birthdays, we *give* presents, not get them. We are giving away 4 songs, a t-shirt and an in-game gift to celebrate the occasion.
The RB Blog has all the details. We hope that you enjoy them.
We’ve Got You Covered
We have an offer for a bonus challenge lasting one week, running between October 14 and 19. We’ll be focusing on the fine art of the cover song — an opportunity for artists to reimagine and reinterpret familiar songs. We’ll have some great DLC for release this week that meets the theme as well as a bunch of super fun covers from our DLC catalog to fill out the challenge.
Keep the Beat Going
Season 24 will be themed around a community driven Rock Band meme that we see with many DLC releases where passionate members of the community will scream, “What!? I thought this was Rock Band, not Metal Band!”(or whatever genre they are cranky about as it relates to that week’s DLC release). You can expect a few Boos as the season opens on Halloween. When all is said and done our loyalty to Rock will be fully displayed.
I don’t want to spoil the Reward but if you think about what we’ve given out the last two seasons, I bet you can guess.
Let’s Keep the Party Going
Rock Band Team is excited for the future. We remain dedicated to sharing new songs with the larger community and serving our music-gaming aficionados.
